Another GOP Sex Scandal

They just keep coming.
But, hey, let’s focus on the important stuff—like whether or not the chair of Wisconsin’s Brown County Republican Party was wearing an American flag lapel pin when he allegedly fondled that boy. And when the chair of the Brown County GOP offered the kid pot and alcohol and free laundry service—really—were the bumper stickers on his car sufficiently supportive of our troops?
The Brown County Republican Party chair has been charged with performing sexual acts on a boy under 18 and giving marijuana to a minor, according to court documents.
Donald Fleischman faces felony counts of child enticement and exposing himself to a child along with two misdemeanor counts for contributing to the delinquency of a child and one misdemeanor for exposing himself to a child, according to the criminal complaint…. Fleischman faces a maximum sentence of up to 52 years and three months and a fine of up to $230,000…. Fleischman allegedly allowed at least two 16-year-old boys to stay at his house and told one of them he could “smoke pot and drink alcohol” at his house and not have to worry about anything, according to the criminal complaint. The complaint was filed Sept. 7, 2007 and says the incidents took place in 2006.
The boys lived at home for at-risk youth receiving court-ordered treatment that is located across the street from Fleischman’s house. Fleischman allegedly offered the boys marijuana, and one of the juveniles alleged that Fleischman said he could stay at his house if he ever ran away. One of the victims said Fleischman allegedly told him “it would be cool for him to have two 16-year-old roommates and he stated he would even do their laundry for them.”
Yeah, nothing’s cooler than a few 16 year-old roommates—particularly when their t-shirts and boxers are rank after a long day’s skateboarding. The Green Bay Press-Gazette has more details…
Green Bay police went to Fleischman’s Goodell Street home Nov. 19, 2006, looking for two runaways from Ethan House, a juvenile facility on nearby Emilie Street, according to the criminal complaint filed Sept. 7.
Fleischman opened the door and allowed officers inside where they found a 16-year-old boy hiding on the floor of a walk-in closet wearing only underwear and a T-shirt, the complaint said. Officers found a black, purple and blue-swirled glass pipe in the living room, which tested positive for marijuana residue, the complaint said.
Police returned to Fleischman’s home on Dec. 8, 2006, and found the boy there again. He had been a runaway from Ethan House for eight days. The teen, now 17, told authorities Fleischman took him to a hotel in Appleton during that time and then to a cabin near Florence for several days before returning to Fleischman’s Allouez home. The boy said Fleischman provided him with beer and marijuana, the complaint said.
The boy told police that when he would go to bed, Fleischman would fondle him and that on one occasion he awoke to find Fleischman at the foot of his bed masturbating.
At what point do we simply start assuming that GOP officials are banging hookers, wearing diapers, cruising toilets, fondling minors, or all of the above?
